? let's find out. dana milbank has the right attitude, and ron reagan, a good friend of mine, an msnbc political analyst. i have to let you at this first, ron reagan. every time i see "gone with the wind" the southern guys cheering, they can't wait to tame miss scarlet. we're going to have a war and it's going to be great. and then the horror of 600,000 people dead including the burning of atlanta. then everybody says this wasn't such a great idea. now they're talking like secession is a good idea begin. who are these maniacs? >> i'm sure all these people who are plumping for secession would call themselves patriots. >> of what country? >> real americans. >> well, good question here. so the way it works apparently is when democracy doesn't go your way, when you have an election and the other side wins, you throw the entire 200-plus years of the american experiment into the dumper. you have a little kind of hissy fit here. we've all about in groups of people where maybe eight, ten people and one of the people, one of the people in this group is character disordered. they're a real socio
with a look at the other stories making headlines here's ron claiborne. >> good morning to you, bianna, we begin with another eruption of gunfire. this time in a parking lot in a shopping mall in southern california. it was caught on surveillance camera. police in newport beach, california, say that 42-year-old mark cost gorolo was arrested after firing 50 shots into the air and ground outside of that mall. no one injured but the mall packed with holiday shoppers went into lockdown until police secured 9 area. >>> a teenager under arrest for a plot to shoot students and bomb his high school. sammy chavez planned to trap students in a locked auditorium and allegedly wanted to place bombs at the doors for when police arrived. students reported the plan, the alleged plot to school staff members after chavez tried to recruit them. >>> and a major concession by the republican house leaders in those fiscal cliff negotiations. abc news learned that house speaker john boehner has proposed raising income taxes for the healthiest americans, those making a million dollars a year or more. but only if
with congressman ron paul to demand an inquiry into the justification of drone attacks? >> absolutely. this whole idea of drone wars in proliferated across the world without congress having anything to say about it, without any accountability whatsoever, is against the constitution of the united states and against international law. if any other nation sent a drawn over the u.s., they would have hell to pay, we would see it as an act of war. we are increasingly committing acts of war against other nations -- yemen most recently -- and we're not seeing any accountability at all. congress has a role to play both on the budget side and constitutionally. so we're just trying to get the ministration involved in getting information to congress so we can see the extent of exposure the american people have to this proliferation of war. as news articles have written, and glenn greenwald read about it yesterday, we're strengthening al qaeda's hand with these attacks. we're making it more difficult to meet the challenge of terrorism by creating more terrorists. what is this about? we are increasingly dysfun
best friend forever. here's abc's ron claiborne. >> reporter: this is a story about a little girl named mia. a little dog named marley. and a real life grinch? >> somebody swiped a 7-year-old girl's dog. >> reporter: 'twas the morning before christmas and it was all captured on surveillance video, right outside the store where mia and her mom were shopping. >> we didn't know if we would ever see him. >> reporter: mia was devastated. >> he's so adorable. i can't even trim my tree without him. it's like so hard to be without him. >> reporter: miles away, on christmas day, a schoolteacher named tina cohen was walking through a park and noticed a man selling a dog. >> they didn't look right together. it wasn't right to be selling a dog on christmas and i had a gut feeling this was not his dog. >> reporter: so, she bought the dog for $220 and took him straight to a vet. who checked him out and found his identification microchip. >> we got a phone call and he said -- he said, we have your dog. we have marley. and we screamed up and down. we had marley. >> reporter: yeah, what were you thinkin
't get enough, thought we were more awake than we were. abc's ron claiborne took part in that experiment. >> reporter: my eyes are open, but what you can't tell in this experiment is i am actually asleep. every day, 250,000 americans fall asleep while driving. like this woman who was videotaped seemingly nodding off at the wheel in denver. sleep-deprived drivers are blamed for thousands of crashes every year, but many times it's not that obvious. scientists say there is something called microsleep. where you can fall asleep for just a few seconds without realizing it, sometimes with your eyes open. hi, i'm ron claiborne. we traveled to liberty mutual research institute outside of boston where they study microsleep. >> a very brief transition from wakefulness new sleep. it can last up to 20, 30 seconds. you are waking. you are asleep. >> i would drive while sleep deprived. to mimic conditions of people who do not get enough sleep. i stayed up all night. >> i have been up 24 hours. >> at the lab i was looked up to a brain wave monitor. i thought i could handle the driving. i feel okay now.
muller. who's in for ron claiborne. >>> good morning, everyone. for the second time in as many weeks the nfl is mourning the loss of one of its players. the dallas cowboys josh brent will be in court this morning. he flipped his car early saturday morning that killed a teammate. we're hearing from brent for the first time this morning. abc's clayton sandell has the story. >> reporter: police say that dallas cowboys player josh brent was speeding down this road, just after 2:00 a.m., when his mercedes crashed, flipped and caught fire. in the passenger seat, his teammate, jerry brown. >> when our officers arrived on scene, mr. brent was removing -- or dragging mr. brown from the vehicle. >> brent was given and failed field sobriety tests. brown was rushed to a hospital where he died. >> once the officers learned that brown had passed away then mr. price-brent was under arrest for intoxication manslaughter. >> on behalf of josh, a tremendous loss to him. this was like losing a little brother. >> reporter: it's not the first time that brent has been charged with drinking and driving. he
, and republican strategist, ron bon john. some say the fact that we're not hearing much of washington is a good sign, and in this case, silence is golden. you guys agree? >> yeah, i definitely do. look, one of the things that we've got to realize here is that the more that this fight takes place in public, the less is being done behind closed doors, because everyone feels that they have to justify the public rhetoric. so i think that we have two silences going on. there's barack obama and john boehner working things out and the republicans realizing that they've got to find a way to negotiate. so silence is golden for christmas season. >> do you agree, ron bonjean? >> yes, i completely agree. i think that silence is best. and right now while they're figuring out how to put a deal together, i think the president softening his rhetoric in michigan on the issue yesterday was extremely helpful. you know, what we are still far apart, as far as we know, on entitlement reform, spending cuts, raising the rates, you know, we've been talking so much about raising taxes that we're not talking a lot about
: a discussion of desire and defeat still lingering. ron mott, nbc news, boston. >>> markets will be open for a half day today and closed tomorrow for christmas, but a traditionally quiet week could become hellish for traders. as fiscal talks drag into the 11th hour with $600 billion in tax heights and spending cuts due to kick in early next year. lawmakers will get back to the table later this week after house speaker john boehner's plan b fails to gain enough republican support for a vote. >>> still, the market has been resilient. despite friday's decline the s&p posted its best week in four and with just five trading sessions left in 2012, the dow has advanced 8% while the s&p 500 has jumped and the nasdaq has jumped 16%. >>> reports are due on pending new sale homes in the nation's 20 largest cities. >>> so are you still not sure what to get for the person who has everything? new retail numbers show footwear was the fifth most popular gift on shopper's list on black friday. a year ago shoes didn't make it into the top ten gifts for the season. >>> good news for hollywood. attendance b
back in 30 minutes we're going to sit down with wisconsin senator ron johnson and talk for the next hour, grover norquist, old buddy from college joins us. will his tax pledge hinder a deal on the fiscal cliff? he rises above? where is that rising above? >> that's true. there are some people who say you got to stick with your convictions, others -- >> stick around. let's bring joe and andrew back into this. guys you've been listening to the conversations this morning. your take away? are we closer, further away? you hearing things you like? >> further away. >> further away. i've decided, becky and jim, that probably the best way to do it, i'm in howard dean's camp, why wouldn't the president go over the cliff and then introduce legislation lowering the rates on 98%? and if the republicans don't vote for that he gets the tax cutting mantel and i don't see how they would vote against that? >> so cynical. >> but so true. >> why is that cynical? >> you know, because -- because i think it's crazy that that's the way things get done in washington, and we will explain that to the public. t
delegates, ron paul 71. >> yeah, okay. what about the states where they're still working through the process, which is most of them, you know, whether, you know, whether it's up in maine. right now we're doing very well in the state of washington. north dakota. excellent, now in nevada. and our people are in the right places and doing the things to become a delegate. it's way too soon to write anybody off. just because somebody is in second or third place, there's a race going on. what if mitt romney isn't the best person? >> people have tried to portray you as a kind of ruthless money machine who some failed, some succeeded, you didn't care, you still got your fee, or you made a ton of money but actually quite a few of the companies that made, a lot of people lost their jobs, their livelihoods and lost money. to me the key question is do you know instinctively from your recollections how many of those companies that you went into would have failed anyway if you hadn't? >> well, there's no question but that a number of places where we went in and invested, we were investing in an enterprise
not in the next 30 seconds but that's a good question you have asked. we'll move on to ron in elizabeth, indiana. ron? caller: i'd like to say that in my opinion, hillary clinton or any other very rich person being in office would be probably the worst possible case scenario for this country. i think that it's about time that some normal person, woman or man, be elected to office so that instead of serving corporate interests as our presidents have up to now, we would have some interest for the people. host: ron in elizabeth, indiana. from facebook. host: and here's some twitter comments. host: robert, north carolina, republican line. robert? caller: after this term of four years with the democrats, i don't think she's got a chance. i'm a business owner. more years of this, i'll be out of business. host: what kind of business do you have? caller: i do grading work, bulldozers. host: how has business been the last couple of years? caller: bad. i'm struggling to stay in business. i don't know what to look forward to, i can't hardly say in -- stay in business. an the democrats in this country, i th
and charlotte would think of us if they were here. >> good morning, i'm congressman ron barber from southern arizona. currently completing the term that was served by congresswoman giffords. i come to this issue from a number of perspectives. on january 8, 2011, i was standing beside the congresswoman as her district director when a gunman charged forward and opened up. i saw him shoot the congresswoman, and i decided that day judge john roll died and my colleague gabe zimmerman died, in 45 seconds 30 bullets were discharged from one clip. 45 seconds, 19 people were down. six of them died. that was an extended clip. the gunman had another one in his pocket and two shorter ones in his pocket, and had it not been for the quick action, courageous action of people there, he would have loaded and 30 more bullets would have been discharged. i come to this issue as a parent and a grandparent. i was on my way to the rural part of my district on friday when i heard the news about the shootings in connecticut. first i heard three had died, that was bad enough, then i heard 20 children had died. and i

boehner calling the white house fiscal plan a joke. senator ron johnson is on the budget committee. he joins us. good evening, sir. >> greta, how you doing? >> greta: very well, and calling the plan a joke, i guess he is not going to beat around the bush for us. >> unfortunately, greta, president obama pretty well holds all the cards in this negotiation. if he wants to have tax increases or tax rates go up, i don't see how republicans can stop him, you know, because everybody's taxes are going to increase if congress does nothing, and president obama is the only person that can sign a bill into law and quite honestly, senator harry reid is the only person in the senate that can pass a bill in the senate as well. it sounds like people like howard dean want everybody's taxes to go up. maybe we should feel fortunate that president obama only wants the top two% to g two percent t. >> greta: do you anticipate republicans will vote for a rate increase if this should come to a vote? >> i don't believe they'll vote for a rate increase. what we'll vote for hopefully is to extend the current tax
and deductions as part of the so-called fiscal cliff. ron in indiana. caller: the first young fellow. the question that i wanted to ask. everybody is talking about raising taxes on the job creators and they will not create jobs. these bush tax cuts have been in place. how long will it take to see the job? host: what do you think of the deductions? you think they have been a part of the tax code lot of that americans cannot do without them? caller: some of them need to be part of the negotiations. middle class people, we cannot. forget them. but the upper class, they get the big tax cut. the middle class does not hardly see these deductions. and especially those that give you these deductions, they give you loopholes. host: let's go to curtis dubay to get a response to that. our caller was talking about if you have the means to hire someone that has the ability to look through the deductions you can get a much better break. is it fair? guest: if you do not have someone to show you how to do it, it can be hard to take them. but for the most part, most people will take the standard dedu

next guest actually agrees with the democrats for once. and thinks that this bill is a mistake. ron meyer is spokesman of american majority action, a national conservative organization. and i just want to make sure that i let people know that you don't agree with the democrats, it's not like you're switching sides here. you just have a lot of criticism of speaker boehner. you haven't really appreciated the way that he's handled these negotiations. what do you make of this plan b? >> well, i have some news to break on it actually. i talked to some really good sources in the house of representatives and staff members and they think that this plan has no shot to pass the house, that it doesn't have the conservative votes. doesn't have the republican votes. there is a growing number of republicans from us straighted with speaker boehner. the problem is not tax revenue. the problem is spending. we've increased spending a trillion dollars in the last five years and we can't have enough revenue to make up for that. we would have to have the biggest tax revenue increase ever as far as the r
